From the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
/1 Hawaii and Tennessee DSH allotments are determined under the authority of section 1923(f)(6) of the Act; that section provides for a separate determination of allotments for such states and the 2.5% increase in DSH allotments available to other States under ARRA is not available for determining the DSH allotment for HI and TN. Section 616 of CHIPRA extended HI's and TN's DSH allotments through December 31, 2011. Finally, under section 1923(f)(6) of the Act, TN's DSH payments for a fiscal year are limited to 30% of the DSH allotment, and furthermore, the sum of TN's DSH payments and Essential Access Hospital supplemental pool payments under its TennCare Demonstration, shall not exceed the DSH allotment for the fiscal year.
